7:05 am
the vice president sees it as he told reporters just before the meeting with gun advocates. >> there's no conclusion i've reached and with my colleagues i'm putting together a series of recommendations for the president. >> reporter: biden said there's growing consensus from his meetings to require universal background checks and ban high capacity magazine clips. two proposals the nra, which represents more than 4 million gun owners strongly opposes. the biden meetings weren't the only ones on thursday. several large retailers who sell guns including walmart and dick's sporting goods met with attorney general eric holder part of mr. biden's task force to develop a plan to curb gun violence.'s suspend the the sale of semiautomatic rivals following the newtown shooting in december. >> just remember everything that i showed you, everything i taught you, all right? >> reporter: the nra tweeted a story about melinda herman a georgia woman who shot an intruder in self-defense as she

7:12 am
your election based on the votes of women and minorities so you should respect that in your naming of your cabinet picks. the white house pushes back and says he's only half way through the process, don't judge him so quickly, but if the president's being judged quickly on race and gender issues it may in fact be because he taught people how to do that in his campaign. there was not an issue of race or agenda that the obama campaign didn't jump on when it came to mitt romney and the republicans. so now he's feeling a little of that heat himself. >> so what does he plan to do? >> well the white house officials, first they plan to say wait a minute, his closest and most trusted adviser is an african-american woman he has plenty of women staying in his cabinet along with minorities more women work at the white house than men, so they're basically saying wait a minute that this recent flap that he's involved in is a little overtorqued as they say, but white house officials say wait a minute, there are more appointments to come stay tuned. he's planning to keep the diversity in his cabinet and his
7:13 am
office as it was in the first term, but there are more picks to come. >> let me turn to gun control for a second. where do you believe the president believes what he can achieve and how will he define success? >> that's a great question. i think where we are is the biden group is moving very quickly and the question now is what's the president going to do? how big of a platform is he going to make at the state of the union where he will talk about this and what are the pieces built together to build this coalition. the assault weapons ban which a lot of people talked about in the wake of newtown, this wrenching moment driving this debate, that may not be the sign of success. what a lot of gun control advocates really say is the most important thing is these background checks so in the end, something like the assault weapon ban which is very closely related to the massacre at newtown, may not be the thing that is most important and may not be the thing that survives so background checks is really the thing to watch. >> john dickerson thank you.

7:15 am
do the same thing for men. welcome, doctor. >> thank you for having me. >> what is the issue here? >> we've known for a long time this is a help. the government is just concerned with new studies with driving simulators that these drugs are staying in our system much longer than we previously thought and it's essentially like driving drunk. it is impairing your thinking as you're getting up in the morning and it's a problem. >> but the fda is only issuing these guidelines for zolpidem for women, why not men? >> we have a different metabolism metabolism, smaller in size and factors we have yet to discover about women and their met preliminary of these drugs and so we have noticed this in the field ourselves and unfortunately there's millions these are affecting. kara kennedy this summer was taking ambien and had unfortunately an accident because of it.
7:16 am
>> what kind of action you recommend be taken? >> well unfortunately, we don't recognize the importance of sleep. sleep is basically for wimps and if you're successful you should push through these barriers and unfortunately sleeping pills we take them, put the cold cream on and take your sleeping pill. there are other options, and these medications can be addicting. you want to take them only for four to six weeks and after that, reach out to a specialist to get help. >> is zolpidem a narcotic and if you recognize that how long should you take sleeping pills? what do people need to be concerned about? >> it's not a narcotic. it's a sedative hypnotic but it has the same impact on our thinking as driving drunk and what happens is you go to see a general practitioner they don't get at the root cause so the simple thing is to say here is a sleeping pill. it will take time to solve but it can be solved. cognitive behavioral therapy, sleep hygiene, mindfulness can be alternatives to the sleeping

fever. i think we'll also hear from the cdc a midterm report on how effective the vaccine is. i anticipate it will be same old, same old. it's a good vaccine, but not a perfect vaccine. i anticipate it's able to prevent 60% to 70%. those that it doesn't prevent makes milder. that's harder to measure. if you haven't had pneumonia, haven't been hospitalized haven't died that's also an effect of the flu vaccine. >> doctor, i went into a pharmacy last night, and they said they had only two doses left. is this a concern about the shortage of dosages left? >> it's bad news and good news. those who haven't been vaccinated will have to shop around a little more to get vaccine. the good news is every dose of vaccine is being used. if it's in the refrigerator, it can't prevent influenza.

>> why is it so hard to have vaccine and vaccine supplies? >> well it's difficult often to anticipate how much the vaccine will be accepted. so the vaccine manufacturers have made over 130 million doses. of course, the recommendations are that everyone in the united states older than six months should be vaccinated every year. how much it will be accepted is difficult to anticipate. >> what do you say, doctor to people who are still reluctant to get the vaccine? and when you can the mist against the regular vaccine, what's your take on that? >> the mist is used more often in children, but it's available for everyone age 2-50 who doesn't have an underlying illness. children seem to like it better than the inoculation. in adults they're comparably effective. >> should we get it? >> oh for sure. everyone should get vaccinated. there isn't any doubt about that. that's the best prevention

first-degree murder. here's the thing. we think about premeditation as something you think of days and weeks in advance. well, in michigan as in a lot of states, the law doesn't really give time for premeditation. so what the prosecutors are saying is that he initially beat her brutally. then he rolled her over got another weapon, and stabbed her 16 times. in that time that he got the other weapon he had time to consider what he was doing to take what they call a second look at his actions, and yet he kept going, and that's what makes it premeditation. what's also interesting is that his lawyer argued against a lesser charge. >> that's fascinating. tracy smith, thank you. you can see tracy's full report "the perfect family" on "48 hours" tomorrow night at 10:00, 9:00 senn tralg here on cbs. and panic, confusion and life-changing decisions. one year later two families share their story of a harrowing escape from thea ♪ i -- i got it

8:41 am
thing, that they're talking about i want to kill people i want to blow something up i want to make a bomb. then the other end of that diagram is what is their capability. where that meets is, if they're out searching in the internet in the chat room in coffee houses, et cetera, for that capability, what would happen if you provided it to them would they go forward with it? in these cases, and trevor won't disagree with this when the jury sees a tape of them saying yes, i could back out but i don't want to and then they press the detonator and they're arrested, at that point the jury is not interested in hearing about entrapment. >> even in the book it says when a sting is done correctly, they're given multiple times to back out and don't. so do the ends justify the means? >> it's important to realize in many of these cases they do offer an opportunity to back
8:42 am
out, are you sure you want to do this. many of the men caught up in these sting operations there's cases where they've been mentally ill financially desperate. in some cases the informant offered inducements. in one case the informant offered $250,000. so there are examples where the fbi says are you sure you want to do this do you want to press the button and they say yes. there are other instances where the fbi crosses the line and offers inducement on this. >> do i hear you guys agreeing on this? >> no. i come here every day as a straight down the middle journalism. i'm not being -- >> trevor is very ob objective

about laying out the facts of the case. so that's important. i think where we part company is the idea of the you put this to the american public if somebody plots to do that and they're showing they want to do that wouldn't people want that person to be in jail, no matter what that situation is? >> you say one man's terrorist is another man's fool. >> these people left to their own devices, evidence suggests they are not able to commit the acts of terrorism on their own tomorrow, the next day or even years later. in most cases they're financially desperate, have mental problems. in several cases the actual targets who are being -- the targets of these sting operations are running behind on their rent about to be kicked out of their apartment. and the fbi gives them money so they won't be evicted. if somebody like that going to be able to acquire a weapon of mass destruction in the near future? i don't think so. >> i would argue that if we take the cases that the fbi have no

knowledge, the zazi case. he was pushing a coffee cart on wall street when he decided to put the bombs on the subway. faisal shahzad, myand you could say, we had seen him at first, he's a loser with no capability. that's not a risk that the fbi or a lot of people are willing to take. >> arthur coupling former assistant secretary of the fbi basically says the fbi's true enemies aren't so much al qaeda and islamic terrorism, but rather the idea of al qaeda. >> the short version of that is the threat isn't really from al qaeda central, as much as from al qaedaism the videos and things on the internet that people watch and see. >> thank you john and trevor. the book is called "the terror
